Chapter 56 She Would Most Likely Be Blamed Again
Yulia’s hands and feet instantly turned cold, and she panickily withdrew her hand before asking. “What? How could I be pregnant?”
What’s going on? She never knew that her friend had medical skills.
“How long has it been?” Alison saw that she was lying and probed even further. Since she wasn’t sure if Yulia was truly pregnant after feeling her pulse, Alison decided to trick her into confessing.
Seeing Alison’s expression, Yulia knew she couldn’t hide it anymore. “It’s been over two months,” she answered while looking down.
“If that’s the case, why are you still having…” Alison felt that Yulia’s husband was unreliable. “You can’t have sex during the first three months of pregnancy.”
“We didn’t have sex.” Yulia was a little embarra**ed as her ears turned red. “I agitated him and chased him away before he could enter my room.”
Alison felt that something was amiss. Even if it was a marriage of convenience and the man loved another woman, he shouldn’t take Yulia and her unborn child lightly. If Yulia had to chase him away by agitating him, how did this person usually treat her?
just remembered that my manager wants me to finish my meal and go back early.” Yulia knew that if she stayed any longer, she would reveal even more. She didn’t want Alison to worry too much about her since that person wasn’t someone Alison could afford to provoke. He was from an affluent family. Even if Alison. had 210 million, she wouldn’t be able to handle him. Yulia didn’t want Alison to get involved in this abyss, nor did she want Alison’s life to be disrupted.
“Yulia!” Alison called out to her.
Yulia pretended to be oblivious while picking up the bag beside her quickly. Then, she put on her hat and sungla**es before saying, “I’m leaving now. Let me know when you’ve settled down in another city. I’ll go and visit you when I’m free. Goodbye!” She left swiftly, not giving Alison a chance to ask her anything.
Alison stayed in the private room for a while, still worried about her. She then took out her phone and sent Yulia a message that read, ‘Don’t hesitate to let me know if you need anything, alright?’
She could’ve easily found out who Yulia’s husband was, but since Yulia didn’t want her to know or interfere, she decided not to look into it. After all, everyone had their secrets, so she did not want to breach Yulia’s privacy.
When Yulia read the woman’s message in the car, her eyes lit up with happiness. She was glad to have a friend like Alison.
Alison soon left the private room, unaware that something big had happened online. The words ‘Julia the Mistress’ was trending online.
Even though it was an unfamiliar name, many people clicked on it out of curiosity, eager to find out who this person was. The trending topic showed a few blurry pictures of two figures, but even though they were blurry, one could tell that both of them had excellent demeanors. People who knew them recognized the man as Brayden at first glance. The caption read, ‘Model Julia Shaw has a secret meeting with a married tycoon.”
“Who is Julia? Why haven’t I heard of her before?’

‘What kind of ridiculous gossip is this?”
‘How does gossip like this even make it to the hot search list?
“They posted a picture and made up the rest of the story. Can’t these marketing accounts stop tarnishing this girl’s reputation?”
‘Did this model offend someone? Is that why her scandal is going viral?’
Julia has been in the industry for six years. Although she’s always been mediocre, she’s never offended anyone. I don’t know who’s vicious enough to smear her.
‘Does anyone else think the man in the picture looks rather familiar?”
‘I have a feeling the man pictured here is the CEO of Cornell Corporation. Can I even say this?”
‘You’re right! He’s Brayden Cornell, the CEO of Cornell Corporation. I look at his pictures every day before I go to sleep, so I can still recognize him even if they blur his face out!’
‘Is Mr. Cornell married?’
I’m not quite sure. It seems to be the case, but he doesn’t look like he’s married, though.”
‘I’ve figured it out! Someone in their circle must’ve seen this model getting too close to Mr. Cornell and was afraid she would be famous after that, so they set her up before it could happen.
‘As always, false news spreads faster than truth.”
The comment section was bustling. With all the information available online, netizens no longer blindly, believed whatever the marketing accounts claimed. They wouldn’t mindlessly attack someone without evidence and solid proof. Little did they know that this matter was true: Julia had meddled with Brayden and Alison’s relationship, and Brayden did ask for a divorce because of her.
Meanwhile, Alison arrived home and was about unlock her door with her fingerprint when she noticed the door had been opened before. She became wary at once and prepared herself to fight the intruder. after entering the house. When the electronic lock rang, Alison opened the door.
Contrary to her expectations, the living room was spotless as sunshine poured in. She took a few steps and saw Brayden sitting on the couch with a gloomy face while Conner looked somewhat distressed.
“What are you doing in my house?” she asked coldly.
Upon seeing her, Conner quickly stood up and tidied up himself. That moment, he looked different from usual, for his signature smile was absent from his face. “Miss Lambert,” he greeted her with mixed feelings.
Alison placed what she was holding onto the cabinet and walked over moodily while staring at Brayden. Evidently, she was expecting an explanation from him.
“Where did you go today?” Brayden’s grave expression gave off a heavy sense of oppression.
“That’s none of your business,” Alison replied before sitting on the single couch.
For once, Brayden didn’t get angry and continued to ask, “Who did you meet up with?”

“Before that, shouldn’t you explain how you got into my house?” Alison asked directly.
She didn’t mention that trespa**ing into someone’s residence was illegal, for she knew that as long as she and Brayden were still married, he had the right to enter her residence. Hearing that, Brayden didn’t say anything.
However, Conner answered on his behalf. “Boss called a locksmith company, and after proving that you guys were married, the locksmith company helped to unlock the door.” In truth, no locksmith companies were involved, for Brayden had opened the door himself!
Conner had no idea how Brayden knew the pa**word to Alison’s apartment. Even so, Alison knew that Conner was lying. If a locksmith company had opened the lock, there would’ve been traces of it, but there weren’t any when she checked.
She only registered her fingerprints and hadn’t told anyone the pa**word. Although she had given the pa**word to a housekeeping company before, that pa**word was temporary and would expire after a certain period.
“I’ve warned you. If you dare to cause any more trouble, I won’t go easy on you,” Brayden said coldly and glowered at her. “It seems like you didn’t take my warning seriously.”
Hearing that made Alison speechless, and she didn’t know what he was referring to.
“After this, record a video and post it online to clear Julia’s name. Make sure to clarify that it was all due to your jealousy,” Brayden uttered while feeling that she was too good at pretending. “If you don’t post it, I will make sure you understand the consequences.”
Alison didn’t understand a single word, but since he mentioned Julia, it was highly likely that she was being blamed for something again.
